What happened to this little baby???!!! Now he is going to be five years old in May, and starting kindergarten in the fall. Whew... time really does fly, doesn't it?!
OK, but now I have to bitch about kindergarten registration for a few. Since we just moved, I was looking into the schools near our house to get Andrew all signed up for school. Of course, a thousand forms need to be filled out, there are more shots to get, appointments to make, ugh. Lots and lots of work. BUT the part that peeves me the absolute most is that I come to find out that kindergarten is ALL DAY LONG. I mean, 8am to 3pm... all day long. Is it just me, or do you all find that a little weird??! Isn't that the year that little kids should be acclimating themselves to being at school, being away from their families for an extended period of time, and shouldn't it be half days?!
Maybe I am being naive in a world that is changing a ton, but for a child that has never been in preschool, I am having a huge problem with this. I went in to the district offices a few days ago to ask about a transfer somewhere else, and the lady working there told me that kindergarten was changed to all day at most of their schools because parents didn't want to pay for daycare. OMG. OK, I do understand that parents have to work, and daycares exist for a reason.... but... kindergarten is not daycare!!! AH I could go on all day long about this, but I really want to hear your opinions about this. Anyone with small kids go through this already?? Is the all day thing as bad as I think?! Help me out haha!
Dancing with the Stars tonite! Did you all hear that Melissa from the Bachelor last week is going to be one of the "stars"??! Yay! She may have gotten dumped by gross old Jason, but she gets to dance, woo! :)
